Give Without Judging

Mt 25:42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,

 

Many of us enjoy being able to give to someone in need.  So often we look far away to do our giving.  In doing that, we miss giving to those who are nearby.  Sometimes we think we need to spread our giving out to as many as we can find.  Yet, many times God sends someone our way, in our midst, who is in need of our help and support.  It may be for a longer period of time, especially in today’s economy.  Our entire reason for giving should not be to make us feel good.  We give out of the love of God and for His glory.  It is not for us to judge how long we should help out another.  It is for God to judge.  It is for us to give with cheerfulness from the bounty we have.  God says, “Give and it will be given to you, good measure, pressed down and shaken together.”   Let us be sure to give without judging.  Let us give without resentment.  Let us give because in giving to God’s other children we are giving to God.
